Living across the ocean can make it super hard to get my hands on delicious Indian labels, that I swoon over on Instagram. A few labels are nice enough to make an exception, however, shipping charges can cost you your kidney & first born child!
Below are a few of my favourite websites, that are so easy to shop & shipping prices are reasonable!
Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop
House Of Masaba
The Quirk Box
Nor Black Nor White
Saree: Surendri By Yogesh Choudhary

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear
2. Just clothes
Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.
Women are swapping out pocketless, slim-fit blazers for boxy & fluid clothing. Instead of focusing on wearing man inspired silhouettes, women are directly buying from the mens department.
There’s a movement now where clothes are not segregated by gender but are differentiated by colour, shape & patterns. Its a long road till gender fluid clothes are introduced, but style is universal right?
In my humble opinion, menswear has seen a creative outburst, with more Hommes experimenting with colours, printed shirts & an outrageous sense of street style.
So dames, ditch those “boyfriend” jeans & those who ask:
But, are you wearing mens clothes?
Kurta: Suket Dhir
Pants: Country Road
When I saw this Kurta I asked myself?
1.Is it comfortable? Oui
2. What else can I pair this with in my wardrobe? Leather jacket
3. Do I have to wear pants? Optional
Kurta: Ritu Kumar
Australian summers = riots of colour !
What better way to celebrate summer (besides the delish mangoes and the incalculable litres of ice cream I have consumed) is with this Pia Pauro dress.
Incorporating Indian heritage and textiles with a modern – chic twist, is a convergence of eastern elements and modern twists. The mirror work on this mini isn’t the only highlight – bursts of neon thread work throughout the dress creates for a fresh feel adding for some spunk!
They key is to keep it simple and let the dress be the focus. Wearing the dress with nude accessories and a blue bindi adds that extra chutzpah!
